people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
talking, at the hispanic chamber of commerce event where mitt romney was talking around this time yesterday. finally here, jim, you talk about timing, here we are, still counting 49 days until november 6th, the timing isn't great for the romney campaign to have to explain these remarks that, you know, yes, they were made last may, but just as you were explaining yesterday, the romney team is trying to reboot his campaign, are they not? >> reporter: that's right. that's what they were saying yesterday morning, that they were sort of retooling his economic message and that was a big reason why they were having this speech out in los angeles and obviously there is also the irony that he was reaching out to hispanics the same day that a videotape was coming out, showing him wishing he were latino, because that might improve his political prospects. i think the big problem for mitt romney in all of this is that there are things for liberals to not like here, things for conservatives to not like here. obviously if there are people who are perhaps in the middle and thinking about voting
